Woah, hey, guess what? After years of thinking I'd probably never have the opportunity to hear it without the interruptions of sound cues and dialogue, it turns out that the orchestral score from The Dark Crystal is finally available on CD. Actually it's been available since earlier this year. Do I want it? Yes. Will I buy it? Good question. It's $24.95, two discs, and a limited edition of 5,000 copies, which means that if/when it shows up at Half Price Books or Disc-Go-Round, it'll cost at least twice as much.
Should I really spend $24.95 plus shipping for score from The Dark Crystal on CD?
Are you crazy? Didn't you learn your lesson about limited edition CDs when you bought the Stalk Forrest Group album?
Who cares? Let's talk about robots.
And while we're pondering that, here's a quiz likening me to Drew Carey:
</td><td valign="top">You are a geek. Good for you! Considering the endless complexity of the universe, as well as whatever discipline you happen to be most interested in, you'll never be bored as long as you have a good book store, a net connection, and thousands of dollars worth of expensive equipment. Assuming you're a technical geek, you'll be able to afford it, too. If you're not a technical geek, you're geek enough to mate with a technical geek and thereby get the needed dough. Dating tip: Don't date a geek of the same persuasion as you. You'll constantly try to out-geek the other.</td></tr>
